Cell cycle arrest of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in G1 by the antimitogen alpha-factor is mediated by activation of a signal transduction pathway that results in inhibition of the cyclin-dependent kinase Cdc28-Cln. The Far1 protein is required for cell cycle arrest and associates with the Cdc28-Cln complex. The kinase activity of Cdc28-Cln was directly inhibited by Far1 both in vivo and in vitro, thus demonstrating that Far1 acts at the final step in the alpha-factor response pathway by inhibiting a G1 cyclin-dependent kinase.
SciCrunch® is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch® will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to SciCrunch®, however this is not currently a free service.
